Senior Vatican Official: Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, focusing on inter-religious issues: has thanked Islamic minorities in Europe: for bringing the importance of God, back into the public square. The Catholic church forbids clergy from becoming elected government officials,but believes that it has a right to secure morality, and the stance of religion in every and any state: Islam, in Europe, politically, is as much an ally for the church, as the Mormons were in apposing "Gay Marriage" in California.

Religion is essentially believed to be good: so far as it is seeking God to obey his authority. Anything outside of what is good, is not considered as truly from religion, which is why the church considers Ecumenism essential: in that truth is of benefit to all sides. Catholicism is considered to have the perfect, full truth, but other religions are considered to contain shattered fragments of this: meaning that all religions are true religions, but only one is considered by the Church to have the "fullness" and perfection of the Truth.
